I ever have any issues with visiting add Dean Flynn. he seems very knowledgeable and he’s very well mannered.
Excellent,great doctor!!listen and knows what he is doing and prescribing.
Doctor was great and very knowledgeable. I'm glad I found him.
He was very clear and took the time to explain everything to us. He also took the time to answer all the questions that we had regarding our childs current health problems as well as the history.
This was my first time visiting the office! I had an appointment and was seen right away after I finished my paperwork. The doctor came in soon after she was weighed (no long wait)! I was referred to him by word of mouth and grateful for that. Also, he's open on Saturdays ??.
He is the doctor for all 4 of my girls as well as a host of my little cousins nieces and nephews. We absolutely love Dr Flynn and plan on nerves leaving!
As always great quick and provided everything my family needed and referral
The purpose of my visit was for a Pediatrician Consultation, as I am in the process of selecting a Pediatrician for my son, who is due on February 28, 2017. Dr. Flynn was very professional, accommodating, patient, and understanding. He kindly answered all of my questions and even provided supplemental information, as needed. The office environment was clean and simple - serves its purpose - and the wait time was reasonable. My only concern is that there is only Parking Lot - Metered Parking available at this time (until they move to another location in the future). Other than the Parking situation, I would highly recommend Dr. Flynn and his Pediactric practice.
We've had Dr. Flynn as my child's pediatrician for almost a year. Everything seemed okay for the most part until recent few visits. He had no assistant at the office (not sure if the person quit or what) and it was only Dr. Flynn doing everything. The waiting time was long; the time he spent with each patient become shorter and shorter; the worst, he seemed pretty stressed out trying to manage everything (even picking up phone calls when seeing the patients). When he finally calls your name, don't think your waiting ends from there. He may have to see multiple patients at the same time, which means you will be waiting for some more time after he sent you back to one of those individual rooms. He really needs an assistant asap.
I'm happy that he always answers my questions and I feel very well informed whenever we visit his offices.
He was lovely with my daughter and helpful
He was very nice and caring but he was the only one at the office. There was no nurse or anyone helping him. He had a difficult time finding my child's veins which made it a difficult experience. I felt so bad for my son because he was being son brave but after a few wiggles of the needles, he could no longer contain himself and he began to cry. I've never had a doctor struggle with finding a vein, so the blood work was unsuccessful l.. very disappointed! !
Dr. Flynn is great with the kids, very hands on. My son has a very hard time getting blood work done and Dr. Flynn did it with ease. My son did not even flinch. Very tentative Doc and overall nice guy!
He's a great pediatrician. I always feel like he takes the time to explain things to me so that I understand what's necessary or what to expect. He's also very patient and kind towards my girls. My youngest is a sensitive and shy character but she feels comfortable around Dr. Flynn. I would definitely recommend them. The only downside is I haven't found any free parking near their offices yet.
My son really liked that Dr. Flynn made the exam fun. Dr. Flynn showed him how to menuver and made it a game while examining him so he didn't get scared.
The wait time was reasonable. Office staff was professional . The doctor was knowledgeable and approachable. The office was child friendly and clean. I highly recommend.
